Rome, August 1. (askanews) – There is also a 19-year-old from Bognor Regis, a town on the southern English coast, among the three accused for the hacker attack on the Twitter profiles of the VIPs, according to the US Justice Department. It’s about Mason Sheppard. Another of the accused is a teenager from Tampa and then 22-year-old Nima Fazeli from Orlando. The three were arrested and according to prosecutor David L Anderson the arrests show that the “criminal attacker hack” was made “for fun and not for profit” and did not pay.

Among the violated accounts, that of Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Joe Biden and Kim Kardashian West. A fake tweet was published for everyone with a request for donation in Bitcoin. (Continued)
